Trees and No Trees

Trees by Sergio Dominguez

Why are the trees being cut down? Is it that the electricity lines are in danger? Or that city planning doesn’t like them, or that they are obstructing the view of the street lights? Or are they diseased…? Hmmm, I hope that it isn’t just “city-fying” Xela…I have seen lots of cities around the world lose their “green” spaces and I would be sad to see that happen here…thoughts?

    From what I can tell from the photo, the trees had outgrown their root space and were starting to breakdown the curb and damage the road. Too big for their pot, so-to-speak.

    • To big for their pot, what a great analogy. Thanks Norm.
